How do I allow or deny websites or custom keywords?

Follow

The Securly admin console lets you allow or deny additional websites/domains or keywords in addition to those in the Securly database. You can either add these domains and keywords at a global level or at an individual policy level. If you are still using Securly's old UI, please refer to the details below.  If you have moved to the Nucleus UI, refer to the KB here

Global level settings

Any domains or keywords added to the Global Allow or Deny list here will be applicable to the entire user base.

  1. Login to your Securly admin console
  2. Navigate to Policy Editor > Global Settings > Allow/Deny and add the domains or keywords there.

Use the following format when adding to the list

  1. Domain - abc.com
  2. Subdomain - *.abc.com
  3. Keyword - *keyword* (Note that this will allow you to block/allow specific keywords without compromising the overall filtering policy for that category of words.)

Note that any domains you add to the Global Deny List that are not present in our database will be sent to PageScan for further analysis. 

Policy level settings

Any domain or keyword added to the Allow or Deny list here will only be applicable to users who have been assigned that particular policy.

  1. Login to your Securly admin console
  2. Navigate to Policy Editor and select the policy for which you want to add to the Allow/Block list.

Use the following format when adding to the list

  1. Domain - abc.com
  2. Domain - abc.com/xyz (Note that this will allow/block a specific URL without blocking/allowing the base domain.)
  3. Keyword - *keyword*

Note that the Default Policy does not have an allowed list of designs. The Default Policy should be your strictest policy.  If you would like to allow some of the default policies, instead add it to the Global allow.

You can also write to us and submit the domains to be added to the Securly database.
